    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to begin. Flexible hours. Not much scope for career progression. Fun place to work at though. I would recommend as a place to start career

    Cons

    Lack of scope to progress career. Not much training, salary and benefits not as good as they could possibly be. Lack of communication from upper to lower level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more formal training structure with a more obvious progression pyramid

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    The employees are fun, nice and easy going. The manager is very cool and flexible with our schedule. Get to drive the newest cars around.

    Cons

    Wages are minimum wage standards and raises are minimal. If you are part time you can't work more than 24 /week. They usually try and schedule you 4 days for 6 hrs each day. It would be better to get 3 days for 8 hrs each.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for being so cool. That's why I stay, obviously not the pay. If the pay was at least $10/hr, the turnover wouldn't be so high.

    Pros

    Can't think of much . Managers are ok . They feed you often . And play competitive games to keep you going with sales

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, horrible turnover rate . "Shift bids" ..."seniority" commission pay is calculated to take money you earn .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized.

    Pros

    Lunch....and that's about it. Oh yes, driving around some of the vehicles

    Cons

    The union and the old rules they carried. The older employees...and I do me older were full of drama and very horrible people behind your back. They would do and say anything to make the younger employees look bad

    Pros

    If you like to be busy, this is the place for you. They have good customer focus and best of intentions, but poor execution. Career opportunities are great - but only if you are mobile.

    Cons

    People are leaving in droves without having another job. The HR department is the worst I have ever worked with. And many of them are the ones leaving. It says a lot about your company when HR can't even stay.
